Artificial intelligence system again showed his usefulness in the field of health. This time, the artificial intelligence of the Chinese origin who reportedly managed to surpass the capabilities of the doctor's diagnosis.

Xinhua reported an artificial intelligence system defeated the team of 15 doctoral degrees reputable China in terms of diagnosing a brain tumor and predict the hematoma.

From testing done, this artificial intelligence managed to surpass the ability of a physician when making a diagnosis of these two diseases. Quoted from The Next Web, Wednesday (4/7/2018), artificial intelligence is named BioMind.

The system was developed by the Artificial Intelligence Research Center for Neurological Disorders from Beijing Tiantan Hospital. The time trials, the ability of BioMind turned out to be above the average ability of the doctor.


When reviewing a number of cases of brain tumor, BioMind successfully predicts correctly about 87 percent. While the doctors are only able to answer correctly 66 percent of the cases are given.

Artificial intelligence is also capable of analyzing the case more quickly. In 15 minutes, BioMind successfully performs diagnosis of 225 cases, whereas the doctors only 30 cases.
When discussing the question of hematoma in the brain, BioMind also managed to answer correctly 83 percent of cases were filed. As for the doctors can only do the correct diagnosis for 63 percent of cases.

Get To Know BioMind

Just for information, the ability of artificial intelligence is supported by thousands of pictures of the archives belonging to the Beijing Tiantan Hospital. The ability of BioMind also called the equivalent of a senior doctor with a 90 percent accuracy rate.

"I hope with this competition, the doctors can know the ability of artificial intelligence and can understand it more," said VP of the Beijing Tiantan Hospital, Wang Yongjun.

Utilization of artificial intelligence utilization in health is indeed being tested by a number of parties. One of the companies that do that is Google.

Together with its subsidiaries, Verily, Google utilizes software armed with machine learning to analyze someone's eyes.

The software is claimed to accurately collect data, ranging from age, blood pressure, including when they smoke.

Armed with such data, software thus can predict whether someone is suffering from heart problems, for example potentially had a heart attack.

Google hosts software is called has the same accuracy with the most up-to-date method now.

Method, the software can be an alternative for new doctors to analyze someone. The reason, the results of this test makes the analysis process faster and easier, including no longer need the blood test.

However, this method still needs to be tested further before actually applied in the medical purposes.
